    Excellent piece of kit.

    • Written by from LONDON

    Just the job works perfectly. You will need an HDMI cable to act as your extension cable. Note the extra connection that will let you charge the iPad as you use it to play through your TV etc. Note also that when you connect to your iPad it locks to it, (to stop accidental disconnection) when you want to detach, use the little release button at the side not really visible.Works fine with Youtube, BBC player ITV player, iTunes movies and most useful in my case Netflix movies streamed from the internet. Used with new iPad no problems at all.

    doesnt work well with iphoto with iphone 4s

    • Written by from Guadalajara

    i just bought it and tried it with iphoto on the iphone 4s and it does not mirror the screen
    the description says:
    "Use the Apple Digital AV Adapter to mirror whatever’s on your iPad or iPhone 4S screen — apps, presentations, websites, and more — on your HDTV or HDMI-compatible display in up to 1080p HD (movies play at up to 720p)."

    it is a false statement

    i wanted to show the diary on the big screen and it just didnt work i could only see the iphoto logo.
    Seems to work well with other apps so far

    Inconsistent connection

    • Written by from Gwynn Oak

    Dislike: Inconsistent HMDI connection from an iPhone 4 and worse from an iPad 2. The connection behaves as if there is a short in the cable... very frustrating! Returned the first purchase, because I thought the product may have been returned damaged; however, second purchase behaved exactly the same. I believe Apple should consider a redesign; great idea, but simply does not work well.

    This dongle is really fantastic.
    I used it with my iPhone 4S and my iPad2, it does everything I need.
    I think it is a new version since it only works with iOS 5.1 and it comes in a new package.
    it perfectly mirrors my devices and I can watch movies on the TV (with HD content the quality is great).
    For games is the must-have accessory. I'm looking forward for receiveing my New iPad, I'll get rid of my gaming consolle and use the new iPad when I want to play games on the TV.
    Totally worth the 39 bucks.

    Works fantastic but be aware of app support for the component.

    • Written by from Heston

    I bought this so I could play games and Video on my TV through my iPhone and iPad. And as I expected it works exactly how I expected it.
    I didn't even realise that there are even some apps and games that are optimised for this cable such as Real Racing HD which turns my iPad into the controller while the racing occurs on screen. Absolutely fantastic.
    My only gripe is not with the component but with certain apps, such as Sky Go, Sky Sports, Love Film and I'm sure there are others that won't work with the component at all, so it won't even mirror whats is on screen in those apps. It would have been nice to be able to watch Sky on my friends TV with Sky Go but what can you do!

    Work great on iPad-must restart.

    • Written by from Davenport

    I was skeptical after reading negative reviews on this product using IOS 6, but knew there had to be a simple answer. You MUST restart an iPad on IOS6 before this adapter will work. After a restart, it works flawlessly, putting the home screen and everything else I tried up on the plasma TV, and porting sound to the TV's speakers. Videos fill the screen and look great.
    It is not Apple's style to ignore a problem such as this, and they didn't. It took about a minute to figure it out and restart my iPad 2. Shame on you people who just plugged it it and had a tantrum because it didn't work instantly, just returned it and wrote a disgruntled review.
    Must have never plugged in a different PC keyboard and had to restart for the computer to recognize it. Apple products spoil us with world-class ease of use!
    Thanks for a great product. My only suggestion is to spell it out on the instructions that the restart needs to happen. Less returns and bad reviews, more happy customers.

    This adapter won't play a HD movie bought via iTunes from iPad

    • Written by from Portland

    Paid 18 bucks for a HD movie from iTunes using an iPad and was hoping to watch it on a TV. Instead iPad displayed error. "Cannot Play Movie. The connected display is not authorized to play protected movie."

    What gives? I bought the movie and the adapter from Apple.

    - Disappointed Apple customer.

    Buy the newest version.

    • Written by from Newark

    I puchased a New iPad (iPad 3rd gen.) the week it was released. I decided a week later I needed the camera kit, digital AV adapter, and and extra charger. The digital AV adapter was posting an "not supported" message and after I dismissed the message it didn't work ( as the support page suggests). I was able to contact support after a 40min on and off call I asked if there might be a newer version ( the Apple support team member refered to my digital AV adapter as a 1st gen. model ). I went to an Apple store and they exchanged it no questions asked. Anyone in the market for this adapter should buy the one in the box not the one in the hanging bag. First its compatible with most devices, second the size of the 30 pin adapter is smaller than the previous which is good if like me you have your iPad in a Otterbox type case. Once you have the right one its smooth sailing. So get the right one.

    Read before you buy!

    • Written by from Milwaukie

    So I was given this adapter, which was awesome, however I assumed that it would mirror everything on the screen which it does not with certain apps ( purchased movies, Hulu, Netflix, etc). No big deal, because it still played the content I wanted with Netflix and Hulu. However, the movies I purchased wont play because they're protected..... All I want to do is have some buddies over, get high, watch casa de mi padre, have a few laughs, eat a ton, and pass out but Apple and Hollywood has betrayed my trust, ruined my plans, and have defiled the purpose of this adapter with its BS legal restrictions.

    I loved this product prior to upgrading to iOS6. It now does not work with my iPad (3rd Gen) or iPhone 4s. I do not recommend anyone buy it until Apple resolves these issues.

    Does not work with iOS 6.

    • Written by from Cancun

    When I had iOS5, it work perfectly; after I installed iOS 6, I can not use it anymore on my New iPad 3. The screen on my TV now plays everything with a bright pink color and is very annoying to watch something or even mirror my iPad screen on the TV. And I know is not the adapter is the iOS 6 because it works with my iPhone 4, to watch Netflix or a movie that I have on my phone. As a consumer I feel really very sad, for all the mistakes Apple has made in the past months. Hoping they can fix it soon.

    Another disappointed customer.

    IOS 6 update removed ability to watch or project videos

    • Written by from Redding

    As a teacher I depend on my iPod Touch, iPad, and now my iPhone to carry my videos to classes, meetings, and workshops. The upgrade apparently resulted in the loss of the ability to show through TVs or projectors (my principle use). I am angry and rushing to find my DVD players and all of my DVD source material to return to an earlier age. THANKS FOR THE SCREW-UP APPLE

    Not for IOS 6

    • Written by from ROSS-ON-WYE

    About to buy one of these for new iPad but saw some posts so checked with Apple to be told that this device DOES NOT WORK WITH IOS6.

    I think this should be said on this page by Apple rather than reviewers!

    This was a wonderful addition to my Apple collection.
    Until I upgraded my iPad (post iPad 2 version) to iOS 6.

    Now 'this device is unsupported'.

    1 star because you can;t post 0

    Should have expected it.

    I purchased a camera adapted for my iPod (they call it the classic now) but when the iPod touch came out, it didn;t work either. Built in obsolescence.....love it,

    No 1080p video

    • Written by from Hurst

    I'm seriously disappointed I can't play my 1080p movies from my ipad to my 1080p HDTV plasma using the HDMI cable. This would have allowed me to play an ipad movie in all its HD glory when I visit my parents and mother-in-laws house too, but Im a graphics guy and playing 720 on a 1080 screen is unacceptable. I really dont want to lug around my blu-ray discs to get 1080p. The only solution is vudu service until apple fixes this 720 limitation, but vudu will only do 1080 if you have 9mbps wifi, not a problem at my parents house, but mother in law doesnt have fast enough internet to stream 1080p. My plea to apple and boycott is fix this limitation. Why should I waste money buying itunes 1080p movies if im limited to 720p playback when i use this HDMI cable to a 1080p HDTV. REGRET buying the cable, the best buy rep told me it would play 1080p since i have an ipad 3. :(
